Larvae on imported carnation cuttings were controlled by fumigation with methyl bromide for 1-2 hours at about 5 g. per cu. m. Some varieties were found to be damaged by this treatment, and among other materials tested for fumigation parathion and lindane, both at 4-5 g. per cu. m. for 3 hours, proved effective without being phytotoxic.
